Pretty much the title says it all about this year’s Silver Spoon Awards. Held at the Intercontinental Hotel on the Cleveland Clinic Campus, this year’s event, benefiting the Arthritis Foundation brought out some of the best restaurants in town.
Pictured: Hodge’s lamb belly tacos (to. die. for), my lovely date Stacey, the always fabulous Kimberly and snacks from Great Lakes Brewing, Co.
The VIP lounge was filled with delicious drinks from Spice, Hodge’s and Great Lakes Brewing Co. Restaurants represented included: Angelo’s Pizza, BonBon Pastry, Cowell & Hubbard, Deagan’s, Dim and Den Sum, Hodge Podge Food Truck, Light Bistro, Melt Bar and Grilled, Pier W, Taki’s Green Kitchen and many more.

Two of my radio favorites (Jen and Tim from WDOK 102.1’s morning show) hosted this year’s event which also meant that Jen Toohey and I finally met in person. We’ve been tweeting at each other for years, mostly about shows we have in common (ahem…the bachelor, bachelorette or Grey’s Anatomy).
The always lovely Leah from TV20, the girls with Chris Van Vliet, Finally meeting Jen Toohey (!!! Twitter BFFs) and hanging with Chris.
All in all, this was another great event, benefiting another fantastic Cleveland non-profit! I already can’t wait for next year!
